My first experience inside the Providence Civic Center

My favorite indoor venue for Dead shows, bar none. Super-rockin' show, killer "Big Railroad Blues."

My # 1 Looks Like Rain!

Even though many feel that 1986 was not a very good year for the GD, this is one of my all time favorite shows. The first set was incredible, and to this day LLR still sends shivers up & down my spine, and puts goose-bumps on my arms. The second set was extra special too. I was in the first few rows for this show, and the boys seemed to be having a great time, and were as musically tight as ever. Just wonderful memories of this show in particular. For me this was the epitome of the perfect show, and if I could only keep one memory of a show, this would be the one.

not sure if it was this show, or one of the previous nights in PCC, but remember a wedding taking place in the (carpeted) hallway behind the stage. Big circle of friends around the bride and groom. Does anyone else remember?

My First Dead Show.

My first show!

Anyone know what Bobby mumbles after he says: "And I have it on excellent authority that there is no such thing as April Fools."?

Then into an AWESOME Shakedown...

Up n Down Your Carpeted Halls

Cub: On June 29.2011 GD Radio streamed this show. It was a soundboard. But not a crispy clear recording that GD Radio usually shares. I did not attend this one but I remember a Hell In The Bucket from Providence a few years earlier. Except for theaters, was the only arena venue that I can recall having "carpeted halls".

... wedding

Are you sure it wasn't later at the Nick in Albany? My friend and fellow taper Mike Lieman Married his wife Laurie there complete with a Justice of the Peace.
Fun beautiful night.
